Employer Description
Capitol Hill Day School is an independent, coeducational school for students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The School deeply engages a diverse community of students in connecting the classroom to the larger world, supporting each child in developing the confidence, compassion, and intellectual capacity to live a life of purpose and value. At Capitol Hill Day School, we believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged and concepts are presented in meaningful and creative ways. Our rich and unparalleled Field Education program (more than 300 field trips per year) connects the classroom to the real world and teaches students problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Small classes and a project approach to teaching create a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Here, students are not simply memorizing facts and taking tests; knowledge is absorbed through hands on, experiential learning. Through our collaborative and inquiry-based curriculum, students build on their natural curiosity and learn to make connections across disciplines and subject areas. At Capitol Hill Day School, students learn to respect the world around them and care for their community and for each other. Our graduates are confident, academically prepared, socially adept, and flourish at a wide range of high schools, where they continue to live out the School’s motto of “explore, engage, and connect.”
Diversity Mission Statement
As diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioners we work alongside parents and children in the Capitol Hill Day School community to have a deeper understanding of our identity, to acknowledge similarities and differences, and to raise our consciousness of the intersectionality of these identities for healthy relationship building. From this solid foundation, we guide our community in considering how injustices affect others, what constitutes an injustice, how injustices develop, and how they can be dismantled. All members of the CHDS community understand that respect for the human dignity of each individual is paramount. Through this understanding and a strong community commitment to social justice, CHDS recognizes and fights injustices in all its forms.
